Notes for David Martin Cox
So far as I can tell there is no relationship between David Martin Cox and my Cox/Cock ancestors, but since I do have Cox relatives in Morgan Co., I want to keep track of him and his Cox descendants who are in the Morgan/Rowan Co. area to help me keep straight which Cox families in Kentucky are my relatives and which aren’t.
Notes for Catherine “Katy” Moxley
Catherine died sometime after the birth of their son William in Dec 1879, but before the 1880 census in June 1880, quite possibly in childbirth.
